#2108 closed defect (obsolete)

ixp4xx has maximum squashfs or jffs2 rootfs size of 8M

Reported by: lschweiss Owned by: rwhitby
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Kamikaze trunk
Keywords: Cc:


This problem appears to be because the NSLU2 image is always built, but for Gateworks boards many have 16 and 32 meg flash chips.

Probably best solution is to optionally not build the NSLU2 image.

Probably slugimage should only display a warning - still thinking on the real solution, tho..

How to disable the build of NSLU2 image?

I think this is more related to kernel 2.6.23 as when I tried to revert to 2.6.16 it worked. However when I tried to load module using insmod it returned an error "Illegal instruction".

are you using the default toolchain combo or enabled something else in developer options? the default is binutils 2.17+gcc 4.1.2

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by uniix@…

I'm using binutils 2.18+gcc 4.1.2. Should I switch to binutils 2.17+gcc 4.1.2 instead?

That's a different issue then what the ticket was about then. Anyways, backported a fix in [10079].

Thank you for the patch. Now the zImage is OK. However, after loading booting & while loading an Intel IXP-NPE driver the system hanged without any errors. FYI, I'm using kernel 2.6.23_14

Which board are you using? Is it an officially supported one? Please open a separate ticket for this issue.

comment:10 Changed 10 years ago by uniix@…

FYI, I already revert to use binutils 2.17 but that does not help.
